Disc Jam, PS4 Tearaway Unfolded, PS4 Under Night: In-Birth, PS3 Earth Defense Force 2025, PS3 Lumo, PS Vita (crossbuy on PS4) Severed, PS Vita
Disc Jam, a combination of air hockey and tennis, has the hype of being the next Rocket League. Rocket League was also was a free PS+ game, which helped it take off. Tearaway looked great long ago in a Playstation presentation but I never thought to buy it. Definitely will check it out.

Also, there's an update for No Man's Sky (blog.eu.playstation.com) which will feature a bunch new content. At some point I need to sneak in and start checking everything out. I think I've played maybe five minutes since the Base Building update.
The problem with waiting to play games until they're marked down is everyone's talking about how great Breath of the Wild is, and I'm all "hey, Watch Dogs 2 is amusing in how much they're compensating for the first game, but I really am awful at sneaking around."
I also played Disc Jam for the first time, playing without actually knowing the controls at all, and it still was super fun. I'm not sure if I could imagine playing one on one for a long time, but it's a really great two on a couch game versus two randoms on the internet game (though would be better if it could connect to games faster.)
Mostly, I can't stop playing 3 on 3 Basketball as part of some crazy mission to level up my SG to my five star level. It's all kinds of dumb, because it may not actually be possible to do that (the item I need isn't on sale) and I'll probably be mentally done with playing the game one I get the best tools to play it, but that's the story with all leveling up games for me.
I don't think I've played River City more than twice so far. I went as far as figuring out how to hook up a PS4 controller for Steam, which helped a lot, but I'm just not used to playing games on my laptop screen. Maybe I'll hook it up to my TV.
